Centennial Station Arts Center
Capital Campaign

For 50 years, High Point Arts Council moved from one location to another in search of a permanent facility where the arts could flourish. On December 12, 2012, at noon—12/12/12 at 12PM—we cut the ribbon on an arts facility at 121 S. Centennial Street in downtown High Point!

The purchase of Centennial Station Arts Center has enabled High Point Arts Council to move the arts forward in our city. Over the past decade, we have worked to transform the former freight train station into a thriving event center that boasts a performance space, rehearsal studios, and a lobby art gallery.

 Our capital campaign is ongoing, with many of the naming rights still available for the kitchen, rehearsal studios, offices, and other spaces. The Arts Council borrowed $981,000 for the purchase of the facility and upfitting and the first note of $250,000 has already been paid. It is the goal of the Arts Council to pay off the entire debt for the facility within three years and place funds into reserves for repairs.
